Pioli lines his team up with an emphasis on midfield, with Marco Benassi, Milan Badelj, and Jordan Veretout offering a possibility to switch from a two man pivot to a three man base. Unfortunately, Khouma Babacar doesn't get the start, so the impetus is on Giovanni Simeone to really start showing his worth in front of goal. The defence lines up as you'd expect; a good showing from Marco Sportiello will be vital if Davide Astori and co. are to keep a clean sheet.

As predicted, the trident of Adem Ljajic, Iago Falque and M'Baye Niang are complemented by the fairly untested Umar Sadiq. Tomas Rincon adds the muscle in midfield alongside Daniele Baselli, while Emiliano Moretti and Nicolas N'Koulou sit ahead of Salvatore Sirigu.

Lineups

Fiorentina (4-3-3): Sportiello, Laurini, Pezzella, Astori, Biraghi; Badelj, Veretout, Benassi; Thereau, Chiesa, Simeone.

Torino (4-2-3-1): Sirigu; Di Silvestri, N'Koulou, Morreti, Barecca; Rincon, Baselli; Falque, Ljajic, Niang; Sadiq.
